Note: The owner has modified the boat since the original description was provided. Details below:
“We stripped the boat of all hardware and refinished her.
Decks and hull were all water sanded The deck was sprayed with 2k Urethane for better UV protection and hull was sprayed with two part urethane Plum Crazy Purple pearl with Sassy Grass Green waterline with ghost skulls on aft sides and 2 coats of clear Urethane. “Slightly Altered” showed well in Gravenhurst last summer. I also built a windshield with green glass. The motor has had a Holley 600 CFM performance carb. and a Wiend 8016 Stealth Aluminum High rise Intake installed as well.”
